Continued commitment to, and advice for, our learners
The recent months have been a real challenge for all aspects of our lives and no more so than for the many hundreds of learners within our TCAT academies who were due to sit external examinations this summer. Our staff, learners and parents, who work so hard together as a team during the academic year and in the build up to the exams, were left shell shocked by the news that the examination series for Summer 2020 would be cancelled when the announcement was made in March.
However, since then our learners have shown remarkable resilience with the vast majority recognising that, to make their next education or career move as successful as possible, they needed to continue their commitment to learning. At the same time our school leaders and teachers have been working hard to ensure that no learner is disadvantaged for their future pathway choices and that accurate Centre Awarded Grades, based on a range of evidence and internal scrutiny, have been submitted for all students in all subjects to all exam boards. We are confident that our process was fair and robust at individual learner level and we are looking forward to celebrating the successes of our learners over the coming weeks with A Level and GCSE outcomes being available on Thursday 13 August and Thursday 20 August respectively.
